jonm BS: Anyone being Ofsted-ed? (59* d) RE: BS: Anyone being Ofsted-ed? 08 Nov 07

Hmm... someone doesn't necessarily understand, Big Phil. WLD has it down pat.

It's Thursday night, I've already done 48 hours IN WORK this week with tomorrow to go, plus some extra stuff on the computer at home.

I could do half the work with half the responsibility for the same money if I went back into industry. Or I could manage the same size budget and staff headcount in industry and take home 70k plus.

Oh, and I get seven weeks' holiday. No overtime. No perks.

Find me another graduate job with similar intellectual and mental demands?

Inspections in education are not fair and are not objective. Judgements are subjective and there is no right of appeal.

Fortunately for teachers undergoing inspection, a lot of the focus these days is on systems and procedures and the collection and management of data to support continuous improvement. Cock that up and it's the management, not the teaching staff, who get it in the neck.
